Hi,
  This is most likely a known problem in the 64-bit Windows VMD package
that's currently available. I will be making an updated 64-bit Windows
build that addresses this in the near future. We had a similar issue with
early test versions for MacOS X Catalina/Big Sur, and now I've got to make
the same corrections for 64-bit Windows.

Best,
  John
